"Animal Medicine": Learning from and Communicating with Animals

Submitted by Open on Fri, 09/28/2012 - 05:13

How does animal medicine work?
I am frequently overwhelmed by the shear beauty, perfection and awesome simplicity of animals. They were surely put here as our teachers revealing in us how our beingness can wonderfully manifest itself when not constrained through distorted thinking and perceived limitations. How is it that the 'right' animal, be it the real thing or just an image, can miraculously appears just at the right time when we need guidance most?...

Animals are our Teachers

My own reaquaintance about such 'animal medicine' here in this realm came whilst exploring the living habits of termites (of all creatures!). To many, termites are considered pests particularly in the US where they destroy many homes. Paradoxically it is the way they build their own homes which reveals the deepest truth - coincidence or synchronicity?

Termites build complex nests sometimes forming huge overground structures. However, it is what's underground that is so fascinating. Interweaving webs of chamber systems are constructed incorporating intricate networks of tunnels and air conduits designed to channel air flow for the perfect management of internal air quality, temperature and moisture levels ensuring optimum environments for their offspring to grow. So perfectly do these nests serve their function, I have heard it said that even the best human architects using the most sophisticated computer programs could not reproduce a design to rival them. In fact termites nests are now being studied to create our own environmentally friendly and self sufficient housing - it seems some are indeed prepared to consider them our teachers rather than pests!

How is it that a creature with such a small brain capacity manages to design something of such profound beauty? How, with no language, can they coordinate their actions perfectly and harmoniously?

Collective Consciousness

To me the answer lies in having ONE guiding consciousness for their species. In other words, they are one being but separated in form. This one being is highly evolved - much more so than ourselves. The guiding consciousness - a 'deva' of unfathomable proportions - can project her consciousness through zillions of tiny creatures. As this consciousness descends through the density of our plane of existence, it forms 'elementals' - super intelligent building blocks - containing all the 'code' required for 'right action'. These building blocks form together to create individual termites. So the termite does not have to think what to do next, knowing is inherent in every cell of its being. It simply knows the best solution - in fact it is being the best solution.

Communicating with Animals

So talking to animals is not nearly as difficult as it may seem. We are certainly not speaking to a 'poor dumb creature'. Through the individual animal, we are speaking with a highly evolved being far in advance of ourselves.

That's why if we really want an answer to a particular question in life, one of the best solutions is to ask an animal. Because they have no ego, no individual thought "this is what 'I' want to do now", the guiding Deva can coordinate synchronicity through animals to bring us answer we need. A multidimensional consciousness landscape is built for us to explore.

In fact the Deva already knows both the question and the answer before they arise in us. That's because she is not constrained by linear time. She's flowing from the place of all-knowing. That's why synchronicity involving animals is so omnipresent - they are here to be our teachers.

What is that creature saying to you today?

In loving support,

I felt to draw attention to this article on "animal medicine" today, because connections with animals can always be so powerful on the path - they remind us of intrinsic energies of the soul.

Today also, Openhand's Community Coordinator, Aspasia, has begun a forum thread for people to be inspired and share their own stories. You can access the new topic here...

I am grateful for this article and the links you shared. I have always shared a special connection with animals and plants. My first awakening happened at the age of six, it was early summer and very early morning. I was outside watching two doves in the tree who were cooing at each other. All of a sudden I understood exactly what they were saying to each other and I began speaking with them. They told me about their life and I told them about mine. I was so excited that I ran in to tell my parents and sisters that I could understand what the doves were saying. My sisters laughed at me and made fun of me, my parents only looked very concerned and told me that it wasn't possible. My intuition continued opening during that year, and I had conversations with trees and plants and other animals. I realized that everything was connected and felt the pain when someone began chopping a tree down. I tried to explain what was happening to my family. They consulted with professionals, and it was finally decided that I needed psychological/psychiatric intervention. To stop that step from happening, I shut down completely. Intuitive information continued arriving; I tried to ignore it and never spoke about it again to anyone. My heart center began closing against humans, but remained open to animals and plants. I shut down partially against the other dimensions - I was never completely closed, and information continued to arrive, but I no longer acknowledged its source. I became a scientist, but always traveled along the edge between the dimensions. Ultimately, it was an abused black dog who brought me back to reawakening in 2007. He had many behaviors and difficulties I couldn't understand and work with. I sought professional help from vets and trainers. One day when we were working with a trainer in a park, the benevolence of creation arranged an encounter that was beyond fortuitous. We had worked with this trainer several times and she understood what we were going through. She began to suggest that she might know someone who might be able to help us, but she was hesitating to suggest it because she felt that I wouldn't be open. She was kind of dancing around the subject as we were walking along a path, and all of a sudden the person she was talking about just appeared in front of us. It was miraculous. Susan, the animal communicator. Susan and the woman spoke for a moment, and Susan said she never came to that park, but something drew her there that morning. She spoke with Zuki (my dog) for a moment, and said that she might be able to help us. And we began working with her. At the first session, she told me things she could only have learned from Zuki, and it was as if my whole life collapsed into a finely focused beam, and I had an intense memory of that summer morning decades ago when I spoke with the doves. And all of a sudden I realized that I was not insane, and that interspecies communication was real, and all the intuition I received my whole life was real. Susan helped us so much and she helped me to begin reawakening.

I have spent the past couple of days in an energetic resonance with Anna Breytenbach. Thank you so much for posting those links. I did not know of her work. I've watched the full documentary and some other available videos and lectures. She is a fully awakened being who we can all learn from. Thank you again for sharing her special gifts with us.
